I appreciate that Kobold seem to primarily US based, but is there a UK/EU dealer and/or website that I'm not picking up? i'm looking for an ivory Soarway.

We tend to get crucified with sales tax AND customs duty when importing from across the pond.

Kobold only website and corporation is in the US, with no dealers outside the US.

Too bad you didn't post this a few months ago, as the owner of WUS based in your neck of the woods was selling the exact model you were looking for, and for cheap!

Sorry, matador, but the only way to get a brand new Kobold is to buy from the website. True, for those that live in the States, there are a handful of brick and mortar retailers, but these are far and few between. For 99% of the planet, online is the only option.

Regards,
Adam

I asked Kobold about the shippings to Europe and they said that they will take care of the tax/custom fees. This was a year ago when I did consider to buy a SEAL and I think they are able to ship direct from Germany.

Give them a call or write to their customer service!!!

Sorry,you just have to grin and bear it,if you want a particular model its either buy from the US direct and run the duties etc or constantly check out the various sales outlets where you might get lucky.

Just ordered a SOA and i have already sent the customs people the KY as i know i will get screwed.:roll:

Good luck

Martin
